The White House is trying to ‘run out the clock’ so it does not feel compelled to take action to support the Cuban people’s uprising against the oppressive communist regime.
Now, thousands of people are rising up to support the Cubans’ plight and protest against the Biden administration’s disastrous policy response of doing nothing to aid them.
On Monday, the pro-Cuba protesters continued their demonstration against the Biden administration’s immoral lack of aid to the freedom fighters. The protesters had begun to gather in Washington D.C. on Sunday night.
“Thousands of anti-Cuban regime protesters gathered outside the White House Sunday and stayed overnight into Monday to pressure Joe Biden to do more to address socialist Miguel Díaz-Canel’s actions against the people of Cuba,” the Daily Mail reported.
“The group stayed into the night for a planned candlelight vigil at midnight to mark the 26th of July Movement, a Cuban national holiday commemorating the 1953 attack when Fidel Castro led his first attempt to overthrow then-Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista,” the report added.
“This is not just a Cuba and Cuban American issue. This is not just a south Florida issue. I think that’s important for the world to know,” said Collazo. “The Cuban regime is a dangerous regime that destabilizes the world and the Western Hemisphere.”
The fascinating thing about the Cuba uprising is that the protesters cannot be mislabeled “far right” extremists. The “Free Cuba” movement is obviously protesting decades of “far left” communist oppression in Cuba.
Dan Bongino spoke out against the Biden White House’s ‘hands off’ approach to the volatile Cuba situation in an interview on Fox & Friends.

“Brian, this is the biggest bunt in American political history,” Bongino said, drawing on a baseball analogy of an ‘easy play’ to score a run. “It’s a bunt. Not the cake like the My Big Fat Greek Wedding, but a bunt, like a baseball bunt.”
“The Cuban government kills and tortures people, has impoverished this great nation of people down there, just 90 miles from Key West,” Bongino continued. “Tortured them, beaten them, politically imprison them for decades. You finally have, again, some semblance of a freedom movement, people speak out. And what do you hear from the White House?”
“It took them, what, five days to say, ‘Hey, you know, political torture, beatings, communism, death and destruction, maybe that’s a bad idea’,” Bongino added. “Five days?”
The White House was pressed to condemn the communist Cuban government, which it did only reluctantly.
“Communism is a failed ideology, and we certainly believe that it has failed the people of Cuba,” Psaki admitted at a July 15 press briefing. “They deserve freedom.”
“They deserve a government that supports them, whether that is making sure they have health and medical supplies, access to vaccines, or whether or not they have economic opportunity and prosperity,” she continued.
“And instead, this is been a government, an authoritarian communist regime, that has repressed its people and has failed the people of Cuba,” she added. “Hence we are seeing them in the streets.”
Psak then discussed Biden’s position on the Cuban situation.
“He has made clear that he stands with the Cuban people and their call for freedom from both the pandemic and from decades of repression and economic suffering to which they’ve been subjected by Cuba’s authoritarian regime,” she add
Biden then doubled down on Psaki’s remarks.
“Communism is a failed system, universally failed system, and I don’t see socialism as a very useful substitute,” he said.
A recent spontaneous uprising led to thousands of Cubans taking to the streets, which was repressed by the state police. Cuba has even cut off the Internet to prevent dissidents from communicating and to hide the regime’s repression.
Beyond the Biden White House’s words, however, has been a complete lack of action. Even further, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas even warned Cubans seeking to come to the United States: Do not come here “illegally.”
“Allow me to be clear, if you take to the sea, you will not come to the United States,” Mayorkas said. “Again, I repeat, do not risk your life attempting to enter the United States illegally. You will not come to the United States.”
Americans can read between the lines: The Biden administration is not willing to do anything substantive to advance freedom in the world. Even worse, it appears to be an enemy of freedom in the United States.
